Travel between the islands in the Adriatic will be via the Prestige, a deluxe cruise vessel that will hold 40 people.

Since 2002, the Seaside Institute has organized architectural tours throughout the world for its members and this year, the destination is Croatia.

The tour is scheduled September 12-19, 2015, and will include stops in six port towns along the Dalmatian Coast: Split, Hvar, Vis, Korčula, Mljet and Dubrovnik. Guided by architectural historian, writer and teacher John Tschirch, the group will journey aboard the deluxe boat, Prestige, and travel the southern Dalmatian Coast in the Adriatic Sea.

The Seaside Institute tours began with a series of trips to the Italian village, Pienza, generally thought to be the first Città Ideale of the Renaissance. Pienza, as well as of other small towns in Europe and the United States, were used as inspiration for Robert and Daryl Davis when they designed Seaside in the early 80s. The Institute has also traveled to Florence, Italy; Paris, France; Barcelona, Spain; Havana, Cuba; and Antigua, Guatemala.

These members-only tours sell out very quickly. The total cost of the trip is $2792 (airfare not included). Click here to buy. For a more info, visit the Seaside Institute.

Want to help a hungry child AND support the art programs in Walton County Schools? The Cultural Arts Alliance and Food for Thought are teaming up to raise funds for these two worthy causes.

logoThe Full Plate Project is a community-wide art project that will raise funds for critical programs in Walton County through the creation and sale of painted plates. Artists of all ages and skill levels will transform plates into works of art that will be exhibited and sold at the ArtsQuest Fine Arts Festival, May 8-10, 2015.

The net proceeds of the project will be split evenly between the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County and Food For Thought Outreach. The CAA’s portion will go directly back into the underfunded art programs of Walton County public schools. The other half will go to Food For Thought Outreach, which provides backpacks filled with easy-to-make meals so children can focus on their development and education, not where the next meal is coming from.
